Oxford is an old city with many narrow streets and alleyways. Didn't see one tour bus go down them but our guide Tom took us along them explaining the history of Oxford and the various buildings as we passed them - including places like the covered market. We probably saw 5 of the 30 plus colleges. Tom was an excellent,... More

I did a tour with Charlie and he was really awesome. Very witty and very knowledge. He told insightful stories and the time just flew by. I rate him in my top three tours I've ever taken (most haven't been reviewed on Trip Advisor but even months later I'm still talking about him so I think it's worth logging on!).... More

During a trip to Oxford this week i stumbled across this tour. I had made my way to broadstreet randomly and noticed a gathering being entertained by a young fellow who was telling a tale of oxford. Even though i missed the first 30 seconds of the start, he was wearing a "free 2 hour tour" jacket so i tagged... More

The best guided tour I have experienced. Tom was witty, intelligent, informative and very entertaining. The two two hours dissipated into a whirl of knowledge and fun. Recommended very very highly.

We pre-booked the university tour for £10 each. This is a 2 hour tour which on this day included entry to Baliol College and Merton College as well as the new part of the Bodleian. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip as we found it informative and entertaining. There were only 14 of us in the group so that was very... More

Fred was both charismatic and knowledgable on our walking tour of Oxford... He had numerous facts and hilarious anecdotes about the city (including Harry Potter titbits - always a welcome treat). The tour was exactly two hours and we were more than happy to provide a tip based on his excellent free service... I would recommend this tour to anyone!... More
